Dear CHOAS members!
I contact you with two important issues:
1.) For the meeting in Sofia Vanya Kurteva has reserved a contingent of rooms in the hotel which is also the venue of our meeting. You can reserve your room using the attached form, in which also the contact details for the hotel and a promotion code is mentioned, which you have to use in order to get the reduced rate Vanya negotiated for us. The reservation is valid until January 17th, 2017 so please act fast in order to reserve your room.
2.) You remember that Pedro Perez, Editor in Chief of Advances in Organometallic Chemistry, offered us to organize a special issue in this high impact journal (IF 12.5 for 2016, ranking #1 in the field of organic chemistry). In order to fill an issue, 6-8 contributions are required. However, so far only two proposals where submitted. Pedro was so kind to extend the deadline for proposal submission until January 16th. I hope that we will find a few more contributors from within the consortium since otherwise it will not be possible for Pedro to support us with a special issue. For our Action it would be a great opportunity when reporting to COST, if we could show that our Action generated a special issue in such a highly prestigious journal.
